    Product Features

    • DX-format, 14.2 effective megapixel CMOS image sensor - softly defocused backgrounds that only a D-SLR can produce
      Nikon equipped D3100 with a newly developed CMOS sensor for outstanding subject detail and smooth color gradation. Whether shooting photos or full HD movies, the sensor is crucial to image quality. The high pixel count of D3100's sensor produces photos of striking clarity, revealing all the nuance of the original scene with minimum noise - ideal for intricately detailed textures and grain-free background defocus.
    • EXPEED 2-Nikon's image processing engine - faithful color reproduction and smooth, beautiful gradations
      Welcome to a high level of excellence with EXPEED 2. EXPEED 2 maximizes CMOS sensor performance for clear, lifelike images that exhibit vivid colors, reduced noise and smooth tonal gradations for outstanding photos and movies.
    • ISO sensitivity 100-3200 (expandable to ISO 12800 equivalent) - great performance and less blur in dimly lit settings
      A maximum ISO of 3200 (standard range) lets you shoot at fast shutter speeds, reducing camera-shake blur in dimly lit scenes. Twilight and indoor shots come alive with a refreshingly natural look without the need for a tripod or flash. Moreover, fast shutter speeds make it easy to freeze action in dynamic situations such as children at play and sports events. For added versatility, D3100's Hi 1 and Hi 2 settings effectively boost ISO to the equivalent of 6400 and 12800, respectively.
    • Active D-Lighting - beautiful balancing of light and shade
      Shooting in bright sunlight often produces pictures with extreme contrast between light and dark areas, resulting in loss of tone and detail. Active D-Lighting effectively combats this by preserving important details in shadows and highlights. The results are optimally exposed photos that better reflect the scene as you saw it.
    • Picture Control - customizing images before the shot
      Expand creative expression with Picture Control. Six settings - Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait and Landscape - let you determine the look of photos and full HD movies before you shoot. In addition, sharpness, contrast, brightness and saturation can be adjusted to customize settings.
    • Guide Mode - the sure way to obtain desired results
      An enchanting portrait against a softly defocused background, or a radiant couple surrounded by sparkling lights. Taking photos like these is easy with D3100's Guide Mode - in-camera guidance that shows you step-by-step how to change camera settings. Just select a Guide Mode setting that matches the scene then let Guide Mode assist. Not only will you obtain the desired results, you'll understand how you achieved them. Guide Mode even displays sample photos so you'll know what to expect from each setting.
    • Scene Modes - your short cut to expected results
      Once you have determined your subject, just set the mode dial to match the scene in order to obtain beautiful photos. The mode dial has six scene modes.
    • Scene Auto Selector - letting D3100 decide the best mode to match the scene
      D3100 automatically selects the Scene Mode that matches the shooting situation and subject. During Live View shooting with the Mode dial on Auto or Auto (flash off), Scene Auto Selector automatically activates Portrait, Landscape, Close up or Night portrait modes depending on the scene. For added convenience, an icon appears in the top-left corner of the LCD monitor that shows the selected mode.
    • Help function - one-touch access to in-camera assistance
      When viewing menu items and you don't understand a function, just press the help button. A description of the currently selected item will be displayed while the button is pressed. Release the button and the previous screen appears. A truly handy function that makes it easy for even first-time D-SLR users to operate D3100.
    • AF Mode for Live View and movie shooting - autofocus (AF) modes help capture moving subjects
      Three AF modes - single-servo AF (AF-S), full-time-servo AF (AF-F) and manual focus (MF) - are available when using Live View or shooting movies. For movies, use AF-F with subject-tracking AF. These help maintain focus on a selected subject and work together to continuously track a subject as it moves through the frame, realizing camcorder-like focusing.
    • Built-in pop-up flash - additional light whenever needed
      When the light gets low or you find yourself shooting in tricky backlit lighting, use the built-in pop-up flash to brighten the scene. It activates automatically when needed depending on exposure mode, or can be enabled manually. In addition, support for i-TTL flash control increases exposure accuracy.
    • Scene Recognition System - intelligent operation in any setting
      Nikon's exclusive Scene Recognition System utilizes a 420-pixel RGB sensor to analyze a composition immediately before you take the shot. It then automatically optimizes exposure, autofocus, and white balance, allowing you to obtain beautiful photos without the hassle of making complicated camera adjustments yourself. Face detection also benefits from Scene Recognition System, exhibiting improved recognition accuracy and definition as well as enabling instant zoom-to-face in playback mode.
    • Ample image and movie editing functions - in-camera image and movie editing
      Heighten your photographic enjoyment with D3100's wide range of image and movie editing functions. Operations like Red-eye correction, Quick retouch, and Filter effects can be done in-camera via the Retouch menu, eliminating the need for a PC and enhancing convenience. You can also extract still images from movies and trim unnecessary frames.
    • Nikon's original VR system - less camera-shake blur in images and viewfinder
      NIKKOR VR lenses reduce blur in photos and full HD movies caused by camera-shake that often occurs when shooting at slow shutter speeds, such as in dimly lit environments or when using micro or telephoto lenses. Unlike in-camera image stabilization systems, Nikon's VR is in the lens, which allows it to correct blur in the viewfinder thereby aiding composition and focusing since the image remains stable.
    • Compact and lightweight - easy operation and take-anywhere portability
      The compact and lightweight D3100 goes where you go. And it's so easy to use thanks to the ergonomic grip that simplifies shooting, both in horizontal and vertical positions. Dedicated controls for frequently used functions like Live View, D-Movie and shutter release modes further enhance ease of use.
    • Continuous 3 fps shooting - catch the decisive moment
      D3100 can shoot approximately 3 frames per second - great for capturing dynamic motion and elusive facial expressions that are a challenge for any photographer. Simply rotate the release-mode selector and shoot away.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant value package I was very pleased with the whole package. After searching online, this was the best deal for one of the better entry level DSLRs. The camera itself is fantastic, I have enjoyed learning about its features. I am impressed with the video quality too. The accessories were great, things I'd need anyway but would have taken me a while to getting round to buy. The bag is small and neat (I worried it would be massive from the photo) and the tripod sturdy, though not massively tall. But a tripod is for stability, not height, so that is excusable considering how small and portable it is. Overall a fantastic buy, I am very pleased with it. 27 June 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Value Bundle This purchased this bundle with 10%, though even at the full price is still well worth it. The camera is easy enough for beginners to use, especially with the 'Guide' options to set the camera up for various situations. It also has all the features that you'd expect from a dSLR. It feels solid and well made. The supplied 18-55mm lens is fine for most basic photography, though I have straight away bought a 55-200mm zoom lens as well for shooting a bit more distance. The one thing to note in this package is that the tripod is not a full size one. Though it does say the height in the description, I hadn't read this! the tripod is only 60cm tall when at full height. 17 June 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant! Love this camera, I've wanted one for so long and finally got one, asda had the best deal, and to come with the lens a bag a tripod and an sd card was even better! The camera is quite easy to use and the manual is an easy read not like most technical things. Definitely recommend this camera and I recommend it from asda. Quick delivery too. 30 May 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product at bargain price After many search on my first DSLR, I decided on nikon d3100, and no regrets for this. good pictures for my first few days.. still learning to take even better pictures. This is cheapest and best deal for this DSLR. If you want one then dont look further. Thanks Asda.. 2 yr waranty and cashback bonus from Nikon.. Thanks Nikon.. 17 June 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Camera Nikon quality speaks for itself. Professional looking but really easy to use, a great priced bundle from Asda. 30 May 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Product After researching which camera to purchase and deciding on the Nikon D3100, the cheapest option to purchase the camera with a lens was the kit from Asda. The tripod, case and memory card were all bonuses and I thought they would not be of great quality. When the kit arrived I was surprised by the quality of the tripod and the case as they are superb. The memory card also allows sufficient capacity for a starter. Very pleased with this purchase and would recommend. 25 June 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by My First DSLR After months of researching a suitable entry level DSLR I decided on the Nikon D3100. Many outlets had the D3100 in a kit (tripod,8gb card and lens) but the prices varied so much. I finally settled on the best deal from Asda online and was delighted to discover a 10% code :-) Also Nikon was offering £30 cashback during the period I purchased. The camera is excellent. It is better than i had anticipated and qaulity of pics is superb. Enjoy Ebenezor 16 June 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb Camera....... I wanted a camera that would be just a bit more "professional" than the normal run of the mill smaller cameras that are on offer. The Nikon D3100 has exceeded all my expectations and is proving to be a top class investment. I now look forward to taking a picture knowing that the end result will be something special. If you are thinking of buying this type of camera then don't hesitate.....it is brilliant !!!! 28 June 2013
